Sunaini Sharma (born 29 January 1971) is an Indian ethnomusicologist. She is the eldest child of Indian vocalist Dolly Guleria and Col. S.S. Guleria and the grand daughter of folk singer Surinder Kaur, popularly known as "The Nightingale of Punjab".

Early life[edit]

She was raised in a musical environment in her growing up years. In 1977, she formally became the disciple/shagird of Khan Sahib, Abdul Rehman Khan of Patiala gharana who was the Ustad to her grandmother Surinder Kaur and her mother Dolly Guleria as well. The first bandish she learnt from him was "Ni mein laa akhiyan pachtai" in raag 'Charukhesi'.

In 1993 she travelled with her grandmother and mother on a tour of the U.K. and performed live with them on stage, professionally for the first time. The Musical Album "Surinder Kaur The Three Generations" was launched the same year in London.

Subsequent performances in India, Canada, United States, Europe, United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan followed with her participation along with her mother and grandmother. In 1994, her dream to witness a live performance as an ardent fan of Khan Sahib Nusrat Fateh Ali came true, when she and her grandmother were invited to witness the concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London during a trip to the U.K. for a private event.

Sunaini's love for Sufi music became deeper and her research and study of the subject became more intense; around the same time her mother Dolly Guleria had composed two albums with 12 tracks of the great works of Sufi poets and Sunaini had the privilege of shooting the videos in the capacity of a Creative Director and Editor to launch the home production under the banner of Do Re Me Creations.
